A Community Network for Bowes Park and Bounds Green
Residents living in the Enfield part of the Bowes & Bounds area have received a leaflet on Monday from Enfield Council about the proposed Bowes Quieter Neighbourhood Scheme. A scan of the leaflet, including a map of the scheme is attached below.
The Friends of the Green, Bounds Green (FGBG) want to know what you think about the proposed plans. Enfield Council have released a perception survey, but it is the group's understanding that a consultation will be done later on when the trial is up and running. The group thinks that is too late so they want to hear your views now as big changes are coming. The measures are planned to be implemented in August and September.
They would be grateful if you could take part in a short survey; the results of which will be fed back to Enfield and Haringey Councils.
The survey is available on their website: https://fgbg.org.uk/
Please complete it before midnight on 28th July 2020.
Wow these traffic issues in the Haringey part of Bowes Park do sound incredibly complicated! In Alexandra ward and a bit of Bounds Green - the part bounded by Bounds Green and Durnsford roads - we have tried running a People's Assembly to get a discussion going in our neighbourhoods involving all sides to the traffic debate (we have lots of ratrunning in various of our roads), encouraging the exchange of facts and ideas, and trying to make sure that everyone is able to have their voice heard. It is generally agreed that it went well, and we had great facilitators who would be willing to help organise similar meetings in other neighbourhoods around here.
Haringey Bowes must be particularly impacted by the new Enfield LTN, and to have a discussion before Haringey propose doing something about it - or before they have worked out what to do about it - seems a good move.
Perhaps such a meeting could be organised by the BPCA? Kate suggested this, and I see that she was on our list for the meeting that I mentioned - unfortunately there was a typo in the email address that we received for her, so she did not get further information about it.
